Insect Pest Management

  • Bhupendra Kumar

Although insects represent the major portion of the existing biodiversity, some of the species are a curse to human beings because they cause food loss and spread diseases. The modern agricultural practices have also altered the bionomics and behaviour of many naturally occurring insect species and have lowered their key natural mortality factors. However, in spite of comprehensive measures of crop protection, about 10% of agricultural yield is reduced globally by insect pests before harvest. While the use of chemical pesticides has increased by 15- to 20-folds in the past 40 years, the expected crop losses to pests have also increased. Hence, there is a necessity to develop pest management strategies that would be based on the rational selection, integration and implementation of available compatible control methods, such as cultural, physical, mechanical, biological, legal, behavioural, hormonal and genetic. Thus, in the present chapter, attempts have been made to emphasize insect pests, damages caused by them and ways by which ecofriendly approaches may be developed to control their increasing populations.
